Don't Let the Skirt Fool You

I have always been what I like to categorize as a sporty, girly-girl. When I was young, playing high school field hockey I LOVED wearing our cute plaid skirts to play in. Our lacrosse skirts were even shorter, but still just as plaid and JUST as adorable. I was a killer on the field, but still enjoyed wearing the occasional bow in my French braids. I could be cute, but still be functional. As a sports player who wore a skirt, I accepted the idea that I could always wear skirts with shorts underneath....more

Five Must Have Items to Recover from a "Mom-Nighter!"

My alarm goes off at 5:30am every.single.morning. It is a relentless reminder that regardless of how much fun I had the night before and how late I stayed up, it is now time for me to start our routine all over again. I wake up with several little feet in my face, make up worn off and my hair a tangled mess. I obviously just pulled another “mom-nighter”. This is not to be confused with an “all-nighter”, the kind that involves alcohol, loud music and crazy dance moves....more

How to Dress Up and Still be Comfortable

All school year you have been rocking your yoga pants, pajama pants and some of you have been even rocking the mom jeans. You can shake your head no, but I know you have been doing it! I have seen you at the school when I was in the drop off line. Now I am not talking bad about you - because let me tell you I am right there with you (minus the mom jeans). For the majority of the school year I have rolled out of bed last minute, threw on whatever was close by and hurried my son out of the house. I have come to realize that he slows down considerably the more I scream "WE'RE LATE" ....more

How Skimmies Will Save My Summer

HOW TO WEAR A LITTLE WHITE DRESS & $100 JOCKEY SKIMMIES GIVEAWAY

As summer is on the horizon, and the sun has started to shine more and more in the NW, I've been leaning towards wearing lighter-colored clothing everyday. You may remember me talking about my love of summer whites. This also translates to choosing Little White Dresses for special events over Little Black Dresses of winter. When browsing for a dress for an upcoming party, I've found a super cute lace dress in white. Now ladies wearing white comfortably and elegantly can be tricky; especially when your choice of white dress is body skimming....more

My Cute Summer Dress Was #SavedBySkimmies | PLUS a Chance to Win $100 Jockey.com Gift Card

This cute green summer dress was banished to the back of my closet for a few years. It was a 40th birthday gift to myself and even though I love the dress, I never truly felt comfortable (or cute) in it. The dress can be worn in all occasions, from dressy to casual. It's made of cotton and spandex which makes it very clingy, and therefore displays visible panty lines for all the world to see. And that caused me all sorts of stress. The two options that I knew of were to go au naturelle or wear a thong. Neither option thrilled me and both were completely off the table---ewww!...more

If you follow me on social media, you know that this season, my family is all about the bicycle. Now that both kids are riding well, we've been trying out bike trails all over Middle Tennessee. Bicycling encompasses so many things that are good for my family- exercise, getting outside and AWAY from the screens, and seeing amazing plants and animals in their natural habitats.If you follow me on social media, you know that this season, my family is all about the bicycle.

How Skimmies are Saving My Summer

I used to really like wearing skirts and dresses, especially in the summer. I could throw one on with a pair of flip flops and instantly feel casual, comfortable, and pretty, not to mention cool, on a hot summer day. Then I had kids. Suddenly a bunch of the things I used to wear without a second thought were out of the question. Jewelry? Not if I didn't want to scratch my baby with a bracelet or watch. Heels? Ha! And of course, the skirts and dresses I used to enjoy became something that were only pulled out of the closet on special occasions....more

Summer Style Diary with Jockey Skimmies: #SavedBySkimmies Sweepstakes for $100 Gift Card!

My Summer Style: #SavedBySkimmies. Welcome to my Summer Style Diary with Jockey® Skimmies® Slipshort! When it comes to Fashion, the spring and summer are my favorite times of the year. I just love the flowy skirts and dresses, bare legs and arms, and a more casual vibe. During summer, the weather in Georgia goes from pleasantly warm to very hot! What can I say, I always want to look cute but also I don't want to sacrifice comfort. I want to wear bare styles like shorter or sheerer skirts while still keeping modesty in tact with good coverage where I need it....more

Sometimes Jungle Gyms Need to Be #SavedBySkimmies

What's fair is fair, so I granted Alexis' wish to play at the playground after an impromptu photo shoot with both of the girls. The second I said ""yes,"" Alexis ran for the open field and began to do cartwheels and back handsprings. Mila isn't quite as good at self-entertaining. There wasn't a swing near enough for me to push the Tiny Human while monitoring the Big Kid, so I decided to set the little one in the grass for a moment while I tried to figure out an alternate plan for entertaining her. It took Miss Mila less than a second to determine that the best plan was for her to go up....more
